Tickets for the 2019 Allianz Leagues, which start next weekend, are now on sale.
A meeting of Ard Comhairle also agreed to a number of ticket price increases for the 2019 season – and has made a commitment to distribute all additional revenue back into the Association at club and county level.
In the Allianz Leagues, tickets for matches in Divisions 1 and 2 in football and for games in Divisions 1A and 1B in hurling will increase by €3 from €12 to €15 when pre-purchased before match day.
A special buy early offer remains in place and pre-purchased tickets will be 25 per cent cheaper than tickets bought on the day of the game which will cost €20 for adults.
Admission for students and senior citizens will be €15.
In Allianz Leagues Divisions 3 and 4 in football, and Divisions 2 and 3 in hurling, the admission prices will remain unchanged at €10 and €5.
Juveniles Under 16 will be admitted free to Allianz Leagues games – except where matches are all-ticket, where the admission will be €5.
Ard Comhairle also reaffirmed its commitment to ensure that all revenue generated from the Allianz Leagues will be redistributed directly back out to every county. A national pool will ensure that counties in lower tiers with smaller crowds are accommodated via the national pool.
Tickets for this year’s GAA All-Ireland senior hurling and football finals will increase by €10 to €90 for stand tickets and by €5 for Hill 16 tickets to €45.
There will be a €5 increase for tickets to All-Ireland senior hurling and football semi-finals and will cost €50 for the stands and €35 for the terraces. There are no changes to the prices of All-Ireland quarter finals tickets.
Admission to the GAA All-Ireland football qualifiers will increase from €15 to €20 for Rounds 1,2 & 3 and will increase from €20 to €25 for Round 4.
This represents the first major review of championship ticket prices since 2011. Additional revenue from these Championship ticket changes will be ringfenced to fund an increase in grants to club facility redevelopments to a new high of €3m, fund additional grant aid to overseas units and the staging of the GAA World Games in July, and make increases in Capital Grants and funding to county boards.
